Perfect Birthday with a Trip to the Zoo

Como Zoo and Conservatory

This is what 38 looks like!

We started out at Red Robin since they offered great incentive (get a free birthday burger) and their food is delicious!  I chose the Whiskey River Chicken Sandwich with the bottomless steak fries and a vanilla coke.  It was better than I could have imagined.  I usually choose the Crispy Chicken Sandwich but decided since today was special I should pick something I normally would not.  Note to self: next time it is ordered, ask for extra napkins BEFORE the BBQ is everywhere.

After Red Robin we went to the Como Zoo and Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota (suggested donation is $3 for adults and $2 for children, but if you cannot donate you are still welcome.)

 
Unfortunately this photo does not show why I was so in love with the monkeys.  The monkey had the smallest monkey on it's back and you can barely see the head sticking up, but the monkey was "monkey backing" the baby everywhere it went.  It was amazing to see!

Then I found a sleeping gorilla.  It was minding it's own business and so it was a great photo op to see how I measured up to the little guy.  My legs are longer, his head is bigger, and he weighs more!
